Woogie Weekend – The Do LaB’s now infamous festival that was quite literally soaked with good vibes and smiling faces as a rainstorm downpoured throughout its debut last year – is one of the top summer festivals to hit Southern California… and it starts TOMORROW!

If you’re still on the fence… here are the highlights to make experiencing Woogie Weekend a no brainer:
For those that do not know the power of the Woog(ie), Woogie Weekend, held July 8th-10th, is a festival inspired by The Do LaB’s well-beloved stage, The Woogie, at their annual crown jewel festival, Lightning in a Bottle. Hosting some of the best artists in house, The Woogie is a dance party that all of your favorite friends are at. Even the ones you don’t know, yet.
This year, The Woog will feature artists such as Damian Lazarus, BLOND:ISH, Claptone, Mark Farina, Rodriguez Jr, and so much more, as well as having an afterhours stage hosted by Subtract LA’s Anton Tumas as well as Deep LA’s Marques Wyatt, both connoisseurs of house/tech of the highest regard. There will also be an evening of Drum n’ Bass to switch it up with some fast and lovely breakbeats, provided by LA’s own DnB label, RESPECT.
Besides the stellar music, Woogie Weekend will offer yoga, wet “adult” slip-n-slide action that will thrill your inner-child like no other, theme days, and other fun summer camp style festivities.
